        Not until the "clunk" goes "thump" as the prop shaft falls into the
street. It happened on my son's '74 several months ago. In addition to new
U-joints, I had to change prop shafts since the old U-joint had worn through
the rear yoke. I'd replace them now if I were you - it's not that difficult
to do.
